TRACKER Plant takes the stress out of owning and using plant equipment

The launch of TRACKER Plant brings TRACKER’s fleet tracking capabilities together with its award winning stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) solutions, to meet the specific requirements of the Plant market. Now owners and hirers of plant machinery can monitor its actual usage on and off-site, helping to increase efficiency whilst benefiting from the ultimate security system in the event of theft.

The National Plant & Equipment Register (TER) reports that 95 per cent of plant equipment that is stolen every year is not recovered and says “Plant is seldom fitted with appropriate tracking devices – the right tracking device is an excellent way to make recoveries and generate actionable intelligence for the police.”
The combination of the latest technology from TRACKER offers plant owners a critical defence against plant theft, as well as a new level of control, inorder to get the best out of their plant fleet.

Stephen Doran, Managing Director, TRACKER, explains, “Speaking to our plant customers it became increasingly apparent their needs had changed. Whilst a stolen vehicle recovery system was essential, they also needed a solution to help them better manage their plant fleets. We have combined the power of TRACKER stolen vehicle recovery technology with our fleet tracking capabilities to deliver to the plant sector a comprehensive answer in one neat package.”

Fleet Tracking

TRACKER Plant is based on a combination of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Global Systems for Mobile Communication (GSM), but with the added benefit of TRACKER’s successful and proven Very High Frequency (VHF) radio technology. Fundamentally, this is brought together in a robust and waterproof unit, proven to withstand the harshest plant usage.

The system reports real time information about the usage of plant, such as engine running hours, and allows owners to set a location radius within which the plant can move freely, alerting them if it is moved outside of this location, known as Geofencing. The system will even inform owners when servicing of equipment is due. TRACKER Plant summary reports are emailed weekly containing clear and concise plant data, both on an individual item plant or as a group, for easy monitoring.

Vehicle Security

TRACKER Plant also includes TRACKER’s market leading stolen vehicle recovery system, offering an unrivalled level of protection against theft, as well as significantly increasing the chances of recovery. The system is Thatcham approved, offering added quality assurance and the possibility of an insurance discount.

Doran concludes, “The launch of TRACKER Plant encompasses the key issues surrounding the use of plant equipment and its security. We are bringing plant owners a powerful new way to monitor the status of a machine and its usage, bringing significant cost efficiencies, as well as giving peace of mind with our stolen vehicle recovery system. Designed specifically for the plant sector, this new product will help protect valuable assets, close the net on criminals and ensure businesses get the best out of their fleet.”
